Thanks to all who contributed so far.

As I am not familiar with analysing core dumps, I am giving below a
detailed log of all commands/actions that I have done so far:

# cd /usr/ports/mail/thunderbird

# make -DWITH_DEBUG clean build

Letting Thunderbird crash which produces "thunderbird.core".

$ gdb

The last command hast been executed as normal, e.g. non-root,
user, and produces "core_load.log".

(gdb) bt full

The last command produces "backtrace.log".

Please find both files attached. Please let me know,
if "thunderbird.core" should be needed as well. In this case I will
make it publically available.

I hope the backtrace gives some helpful information about the reason of
the segmentation fault.
